Development Program - Fall/Winter/Spring

The development program is for high school athletes with rowing experience who aspire to row competitively. The focus is on fitness, strength and mobility, and technical skills, with an eye toward future tryouts. Lead coaches work closely with their competitive team counterparts to develop a training plan and track the progress of each athlete over the course of the season.
